Christine Lefebvre Design specializes in small-scale museum exhibitions with a focus on rich, detailed, and thoughtful graphics.

Prior to launching her own design studio, Christine Lefebvre worked for internationally-renowned museum design firms Christopher Chadbourne & Associates in Boston, MA and Gallagher & Associates in Washington, DC. She has thirteen years’ professional experience in exhibition design and holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in design from Syracuse University, with additional training at the Boston Architectural College. Her work has been recognized by AIGA (the professional association for design) and the Society for Environmental Graphic Design.

Current clients include the Newseum (Man Walks on The Moon—June), and the Colby Museum of Art (Wiwenikan…the beauty we carry—July). Projects currently on view in Washington, DC include Smithsonian Gardens’ National Mall-wide exhibition series, Habitat, and exhibitions at the National Building Museum (Hoops), the Newseum (The Digital Disruption of News and A Deadly Attack…), the National Law Enforcement Museum (Five Communities), Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden (What Absence Is Made Of), and the Smithsonian National Postal Museum (Beautiful Blooms: Flowering Plants on Stamps).

Christine has volunteered extensively for AIGA: she previously served on the Boston chapter's board of directors, and directed the 2011 AIGA “BoNE Show” (Best of New England Design) competition and awards show. She mentors young designers through the DC chapter's “Shine” program and volunteered as a children’s reading tutor through Reading Partners DC.
